Removing Photos from iPhoto

Despite iPhoto's long history, many people continue to be confused about exactly what happens when you delete a photo. There are three possibilities.

If you delete a photo from an album, book, card, calendar, or saved slideshow, the photo is merely removed from that item and remains generally available in your iPhoto library.

If, however, you delete a photo while in Events or Photos view, that act moves the photo to iPhoto's Trash. It's still available, but...

If you then empty iPhoto's Trash, all photos in it will be deleted from the iPhoto library and from your hard disk.

The Upstart that Dares to Challenge Google

John Paul Titlow, writing for Fast Company, takes a look inside DuckDuckGo, the fledgling search engine with a focus on privacy. New users are flocking to the site after the intelligence leaks that began last year. However, even with its fast growth, it receives only about 4 million searches per day, three orders of magnitude less than Google’s 5.9 billion.favicon follow link

I started using it last year and really like it. I wish I could make it the default search engine in iOS Safari.

I am agonized to say this, but Duck Duck Go is not up to snuff.

I am nearly insane about the violations of our privacy everywhere. A few months ago, I made the switch. I told all my browsers to default to Duck.

Within hours, I was searching for something technical (I'm a programmer) that was not obscure. I asked Duck and didn't get the answer. I tried five different search phrases. No love.

I went to google and got it on the first try. I killed my google cookies to make sure it wasn't relying on my history and tried again. I got the right answer in position one or two for all five of the Duck phrases that failed.

I did not give up right away. It took about three days and probably a dozen experiments like this one. It's tragic. I really, really want Duck Duck Go to work but, being able to know the answers is more important than avoiding google.
